Bumblebee bats live in limestone caves, where they roost in groups. As far as a physical description goes, they range from gray to reddish brown in color, possess a hog-like snout,They are nocturnal animals, coming out at night to feed on insects. Bumblebee bats use echolocation to hunt their prey, which is snatched both from the air while in flight, and from off of leaves and twigs. They hunt within a relatively short distance from their roosting site.
Unfortuantely Bumblebee bats are listed as vulnerable. Forest burning has had a large impact on their downward population trend, and it is now believed that their are 4,000 left in the world. In 2007, the Bumblebee Bat was chosen as a focal species for the EDGE project.
